An associative algebra of differential forms with division has been constructed. The algebra of forms in each different space provides a practical realization of the universal Clifford algebra of that space. A classification of all such algebras is given in terms of two distinct types of algebrasN k and S k . The former include the dihedral, quaternion, and Majorana algebras; the latter include the complex, spinor, and Diracalgebras. The associative product expresses Hodge duality as multiplication by a basis element. This makes possible the realization of higher order algebras in a calculationally useful algebraic setting. The fact that the associative algebras, as well as the enveloped Lie algebras, are precisely those arising in physics suggests that this formalism may be a convenient setting for the formulation of basic physical laws.
